Future vision of Kyoto 21st century – KYOTO SOAP
Contributors were asked to develop strategies for Kyoto’s future. One of the proposals focusing on updating Kyoto’s identity construct is a TV-sitcom, in which actual issues would be made widely known and debated by using an easy-to-be-consumed media. KYOTO SOAP embeds topics currently discussed in reality into its plots: like as urban planning strategies and environmental issues. Citizens‘ opinions on these issues will become part of the plots and be staged as disputes between characters. The settings are Kyoto’s heritage sites, train stations, houses, markets, its sinister places, KAI airport etc.
